Description: Baan Thai is a new concept in Thai Food. Offering regional Thai cuisine that focuses on the Essan region, the menu doesn't offer Pad Thai or Pad See Eww. Instead we branched out and offer dishes that are traditional, authentic and un-Americanized.

Had to wait for a table but we were shown to a bar where we could sit and have a drink and look at a menu. The meal was excellent and the service great. The chefs were in the restaurant area so you could see them preparing your food.

We arrived with around 6:40. They waited until 7:02 to come take our order, when we learned that happy hour ended at 7. I must have given her a look, because once they brought our drinks out the server said she would put it under happy hour pricing. I'd say that balances out to being about average.

The food was delicious. We both got maki rolls. They come in sets of 6 or 8, which it didn't specify on the menu. They had the standard choices, plus a variety of more original creations like Ninja or Spider rolls. They had a cute little pitcher for the soy sauce already on the table. Be warned, it pours fast, and not in the trajectory you'd expect. Good luck aiming it at the little tray without getting it all over the table.

Overall, cute place. I'll definitely be going back!

Of all the restaurants in the DC area this has to be my favorite.
Good Food, Great Service!

Food is freshly made and presented very well! There are two gentleman that always seem to be waiting tables, they are great! Friendly, sincere and always smiling!

I will continue to dine here and always look forward to seeing the same staff. That says a lot about the restaurant when the turnover is low!

Keep up the good works guys and gals!

Great Sushi at a fair price. Always fast and fresh! This is our 'go to' Sushi restaurant and our regular waitress Fai is excellent and so sweet. AND, the fact that they are open late is perfect for a late dinner with our crazy schedules. ขอขอบคุณคุณ

For a small place, the food was excellent and you couldn't beat the price! My fiancé got the lemongrass beef which was outstanding and we could eat it forever. I got sushi which was also good.
